(small photo eeek!) I drew the head of a deer then looked for and embroid the lines with a back stitch. After looking for ways to make some roses (which I embroid in 3 colours) I've found the deer had to be filled so just filled it with what I think is a satin stitch.
I wanted to use the Tolkien quote for a while now so thought it would fit the embroidery. Below I've embroid the translation of the quote in my Mother tongue : South African. By the way is the past tense of embroid: embroid?
